Drug and Alcohol Testing

We can assist your efforts as an employer to insure a drug-free workplace. Drug screen specimens are collected for pre-employment, post-accident, random, suspicion or follow-up. Specimens are collected following a strict chain of custody guidelines. Breath Alcohol testing is done with results available within minutes. Both DOT and non-DOT testing is offered.

Pre-placement Health Screens

The goal of any pre-placement screening should be to match the job with the person. This helps to protect both the prospective employee and the employer. WNH’s Occupational Health Department can assist the employer to individualize screening based on specific needs of the position. Services could include: chemistry profile, cholesterol levels, blood count, back or chest x-ray, pulmonary functioning, EKG (resting or stress), height, weight, health history, vision exam, drug/alcohol testing, and hearing screen.

Physical Capacity Profile

This state-of-the-art computerized testing, when performed post-offer, aids the prospective employer in avoiding the placement of an individual into a position that they are not physically capable of performing. When employees are physically matched to the job, they are less likely to be injured on the job. This testing includes:
